Nose is subdued. Roasted malts, chocolate with hints of fruit and alcohol. Pours a solid brownish-black with a quickly dissipating tan head and negligible lacing. The flavor of rosted malts and fruit followed by an alcohol/slightly bitter finish. Rather one demintional. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, yawn. Sorry, not much going on here.

Dark beer with some cola color around the edges. Fizzy brown head that shrank to a slick. This is a big, rich beer with lots of chocolate, some dusty chocolate, molasses, roasted grains, buttered toast and an almost smokey sensation. The alcohol is nice and warming. This is a really tasty porter.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish black with a resilient beige head. Aroma is roast, hops, fruits. Flavor is milk chocolate, sweet toffee, dark berries, café au lait, brown sugar. Finish is coffee, cocoa. Lingering coffee, cocoa, and some dark berries. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Very solid porter.

GMCC2181 (1554) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle via StateLine... Big khaki colored, rocky head that sticks around. Black in color. Solid nose chocolate, roasted malts, ash. Taste is great for a porter. Tons of roasted malts, big chocolate notes, slight dark fruits, oats, ashy, after taste is full of hops... lingering bitterness just sits on your tongue. Medium body, easy to drink. Overall: another winner by ME Beer CO

I love porters and this one is right up there. I like what they are doing in Maine Brewing Co. This is the best I’ve tried of them, although I need to try more. Deep dark brown almost black body and big frothy tan head. Beautiful looking porter. Strong coffee and chocolate aroma, roasted malts. Similar flavors, rich and satisfying. One to find!

A nice nose, noticeable roasty malts right off the bat. It pours a dark, dark brown with a deep brown head. A lot of head on this pour because I had aged it about 6 months and I wanted to liven it up; I poured right into the glass and let it sit for about 10 minutes. It’s sweet in the initial taste, and you can really get the chocolate. It’s not thin, but not thick either; there isn’t much of a linger, which is kind of disappointing. It’s definitely a phenomenal porter, but it could have used a longer finish.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle into glass. Dark Brown black body with a thick khaki head that laces heavily down the glass. Smells heavy on cereal malts with coffee, mocha, chocolate, and a backbone of hops. Complex and enticing. Taste is hugely creamy. Dark Chocolate bitterness and those cerealy malts combine to create a full body with a coffee and hop bitter finish. So smooth and balanced

Strong sweet and moderate robust malt aroma. Opaque brown color with a medium brown head. Strong sweet beginning with a light bitter and moderate sour finish. Palate is light.

Pours a really dark brown with a thin but imposing tan head that sticks and leaves some nice patterns. Aroma is roasted malt covering a nicely hoppy background. Taste is a bit sweet, roasty again with a nice and clean bitterness. Flavors are dark chocolate, some dark fruit, coffee roast. Body is medium and mouthfeel is full and creamy with a low carbonation level. Nice!
